West Virginia’s Finest

 This is the 3rd year in a row that the Black Star Motorsports team has been invited to take part in and guest judge the final round for the Swimsuit USA bikini contest at Quaker Steak & Lube.  Just letting everyone know we take our Bikini Contest Judging responsibilities very seriously.  We had a blast and all our sponsors were getting some great exposure.


Thanks to my good friend Derek Correll for sending me these pics from a Dealership in North Carolina. Look Mom! I finally made it!

Jettribe gear crossing over

This off season Black Star Motorsports decided to take it to the dirt and give UTV racing a go.  While UTV racing and Jet Ski racing are a world apart, both sports share a common thread, speed and competition.  Going into our first UTV race was a huge learning experience for us, but with each event we get better and better.  One thing that I wanted to post about was that the fact that we searched all over for offroad gloves to race in.  Might seem trivial to some, but if you can’t grip the wheel, your not going to do well.  We ended up going back to our Jettribe R-15 Race gloves.  These are the most comfortable and best griping gloves on the market for any sport, hands down.  You may also notice in the pic, I’m wearing my Jettribe Moto Tour Coat.  This jacket handled the cold, wet, muddy conditions with ease.  What can I say, I love my Jettribe gear!  Now, if I can just get Tony at Jettribe to design some other gear for this UTV market…….
